French techonlogy specialist Capgemini has won a contract with Statoil to improve its digital operations globally.

The three-year deal will see Capgemini work on the energy giant’s digital roadmap.

It will focus on three priorities, including improving data management in the core business, including use of intelligent software robots.

The work will also prioritise improved data analytics for decision-making, using algorithms to predict equipment failure.

Use of robots and remote controls to limit human exposure to physically intense activities will also be part of the project.

Capgemini says the work will support Statoil’s Digital Centre of Excellence (CoE), as it aims to become a digital leader among the major energy suppliers.

The firm says the majority of the services will be delivered to Statoil’s operations in Norway, along with other locations globally.

Anil Agarwal, head of Capgemini in Norway and Sweden, said: “We are very proud and pleased that Statoil has chosen us as a strategic partner for its digitization and we look forward to supporting them on their digital journey.

“This agreement will further strengthen our well-established and highly valued partnership.”
